Rebecca is a Manager of Communications at the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation. She is responsible for content generation and supports in the other aspects of communications at the centre.
Prior to joining GCMD, she was a Lead Project Editor and an Associate Editor in an international academic publisher, where she was responsible for end-to-end delivery of book publications.
Rebecca has held operations and strategy responsibilities in Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) and APL, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and Yantai CIMC Raffles, one of the largest offshore rigs builders based in Northeast China.
Upon her return to Singapore, she joined The Straits Times and provided editorial support to the newsroom and to The Straits Times Press, the publishing arm of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH). After a good run with the Group, Rebecca joined academic publishing. During her time as an Associate Editor she published 10 titles, of which she was lead project editor of six. By happenstance, following on from a blog article she co-wrote with a colleague, Rebecca was invited by NUS Libraries to co-present at a talk, where she spoke about how digital archives can be deployed to enable research.
Rebecca graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Honours, Upper Second) in Political Science. She also holds a Master’s degree from the Singapore Management University’s School of Social Sciences.
She enjoys high-intensity workouts inspired by mixed martial arts. If you are like-minded, you might run into her at the gym!
